Default Best Forum Software?

I know there are many forum softwares available, some are free while some are paid.
I heard of vBulletin to be best but recently heard of IPB, Xenforo and many other.
I know, many of you have used or using a forum software for any purpose.So, what do you think, which forum is best?

NOTE: Consider both paid and free.

Answers:
Free :- MyBB, SMF, phpBB
Paid :- Xenforo, IPB

phpBB in my opinion.

And it's free.

For my SA-MP servers, I always used phpBB and XenForo. I used MyBB like once or twice, and I wouldn't suggest that. IPB/VBulletin are good but the prices..

This has already been discussed countless times. vBulletin used to be the standard, but no longer. Quality suffered greatly when IB took over Jellsoft. They also charge you for every upgrade unlike other companies.

Also take this advice to heart: DO NOT use nulled versions of paid forum software. When you buy the software you have to enter the web address that you host the forum on so the vendor can verify that you're allowed to run the software. If you use a nulled version you risk having your forum shut down, among other sanctions.

XenForo if you want to pay for it, also Discourse (free) seems good.

SMF and MyBB are bad and have ugly themes.

vB and XenForo ain't worth it. I'd recommend MyBB or phpBB, they're good. IPB isn't that much attractive in my opinion, like 3 good themes and the rest suck, though I like the theme editor there, but if you'll just null it and use it illegally I won't recommend risking it (same goes for vB and XenForo).

I would take SMF, giving the best qualities and features, very basic and easy to use, if you look for a good theme, check this out:

https://custom.simplemachines.org/th...php?lemma=2847

If people tell you SMF sucks, means they never actually putted a serious effort giving a chance, i always used this software since it fits my requirements.

Making permissions is VERY simple as making groups.

( That theme i sent is also on english, depends on which language you installed your forum )
